The Legacy of the Samuel Kootz Gallery

“The Legacy of the Samuel Kootz Gallery,” an exhibition and catalogue from The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia, will present works by the European and American modernist artists represented by Kootz, and highlight the impact of his promotion of these artists on the postwar art world. This effort will fill a void in scholarship around Kootz, a significant innovator in his field, and will highlight the seminal role art dealers can and have played in advancing particular artists and movements. The catalogue itself will be a lasting resource for scholarly research as well as a critical teaching tool to promote this creative lens for examining postwar art in America.
